Tulip Lover (2/25)

I love tulips almost as much as I love Cleveland. To me they symbolize the freshness of spring and the beauty and grace of mother nature. This weekend I was in Heinens and purchased the most gorgeous, elegant bouquet of long-stemmed, french, yellow tulips to brighten my dinner party table.

Now I bet you are wondering why I am telling you this? Well, after a few weekend phone calls to friends (living out of state), the topic of "tulip season" came up. Do you know I purchased a dozen flowers for a whopping $5.99 while my friend in Manhattan paid $9.99 and my sister in Seattle paid $11.00? Now I understand the concept of "price is relevant"...but to all other North East Ohio tulip lovers it seems to me we have it made!

With this steal of a deal I plan to have fresh tulips around until mine actually pop out of the currently frozen Cleveland ground. Off to Heinens I go, won't you join me? :)

Me neither...although the snow today is so very pretty. It is that perfect sticky snow, the trees look so picturesque. Enjoy!
